In all fairness to Tim (and despite the fact that emotionally I agree
with you), the fact is that there had been essentially no forward motion
on www.python.org redesign until he went to work.  Even if we end up
chucking out all his work in favor of something else, I'll consider the
PSF's money well-spent for bringing the community energy into it.
